President Andreas, In his annual address, pleaded with the coaches to abandon the "stalling game" and make basketball a "virile, rugged game of action." He pointed out that Ice hockey Is becoming Increasingly popular In the East and North and might supplant basketball as the leading winter sport unless steps arc taken to put more action In the game. During the debating at the convention the East accused the West of sponsoring rough play. The West replied that the East had originated the "block." This makes a good basketball fan laugh. To think that Eastern teams playing the long pass, girl fashion sytle of basketball, would make such an attack. The East should start playing basketball the way that the men out West play It. It was suggested, among other things, that the rules committee get out a moving picture of a model basketball game to bo shown to coaches, officials and players In every section. Another scheme called for the manufacturers of sporting goods to send a crack set of officials thrugh-othe land to lecture and demonstrate the proper method of calling a same, "As matters liow stand," said Coach Keogan of Notre Dame, "It is necessary for a coach to teach his team a different style of game for every section In which he plays. That Is expecting a little too much." The rules committee also was petitioned to do something toward defining the legitimate "block," such as placing diagrams In the next rule book to show what constitutes a legal play of this kind. The assembled mentors were almost unanimous In condemning the "block," yet a vote, demanded by Dr. F. C. Allen of the University of Kansas, disclosed that about 98 per cent of those present have been teaching their players to use It, in "self defense," they said. The most radical proposal for the improvement of the game was sponsoring by Oswald Tower, editor of Basketball Guide. He suggested that the number of free throws be reduced by permitting them only when a player is fouled when actually in possession of the ball. In all other cases, he said, the offended team would be given possession where the offense occurred and a foul charged to the offending player. Tower's suggestion received active support from Nat Holman, famous professional star, now coach of College of City of New York. Holman said the rule had proved a boon to the professional game. The association's research committee was asked to look into the proposal and report at the next meeting. The researchers likewise were asked to consider Dr. Allen's proposal that the basket be boosted to twelve feet, two feet higher than the present standard. The Kansas member declared he had found the higher hoop a great improvement. While the percentage of field goals is Just as high, he said, the present advantage of the tall player is reduced. Other suggested rule changes were dealt with summarily by the coaches. They voted not to change the center jump, not to establish a "center zone,," not to penalize teams reporting late, to permit the Jumping center to keep both' arms free and not to cut the time-oallowance from two minutes to one. A proposed rule that a dribbler be allowed only one bounce was rejected unanimously, and no action was taken toward imprvlng the present method of handling balls. It was decided that the onus for "stlallng" will continue to rest on the defensive side, whether it is ahead or behind in the scoring.

It ccr- talnly Is. a queer sort of revenge, but It seems infinitely wcet to those tho nchleve it. One cannot help thinking what would happen to the Christian author who wrote and acknowlcdgd such a book as A Jew In Love, But no Christian would be man enough to write it and certainly not artist enough to portray its characters as Ben Hecht has done, Tho author's vlclousnss is so great as to become appalling, and even tiresome. Ho goes so far in his dissection of "Jo Boshere" that one soon grows weary. However, the book has a certain freshness that holds the reader's attention and forces him to like and enjoy "Jo Boshere" and his esca- -, pades.

Brief Biographies The Looking Magazines i a Ghost to your bidding The chemist Van Helmontin 1609 discov- ered an invisible substance, an emanation from coal, that he named "geist," meaning ghost, shortened in English to gas. Only now do its miraculous possibilities begin to be glimpsed. Only now can modAladdin rubern industry, like a latter-da- y bing his lamp to summon a vaporous genii, turn a valve and order this Ghost to any one of a hundred tasks. From the beginning, the problem was one a half century ago, set itself to develop and produce the right materials for every gas and oil purpose, it began an incalculably valuable contribution to the solution of problems that had held back the gas industry since the Chinese of piping. When Crane Co., used hollow bamboo. So in the development of the natural and manufactured gas industry, as in practically every other industry, the Crane line of valves, fittings, fabricated piping, and haye played an important part. No matter what branch of industry you enter, you will find Crane materials playing a similarly important part. specialties iCR AN WING MATERIALS TO CONVEY ANO CONTROL STEAM, LIQUIDS.
